Week ending 4th of September

This week we have been reading our books. Our focus has been comprehension and we have been discussing our answers to higher order questions! We have had some super debates. Wow!

We are continuing to learn about the Plains Indians as part of our larger topic, ‘Native People’. We have learned many facts about how the Plains Indians lived. Everyone made a tipi and decorated it with traditional patterns. We also made a flat tipi which opens and demonstrated our knowledge of what was kept inside a tipi by drawing detailed pictures. We know loads of facts and really impressed Mrs Allan when she visited our classroom and asked us about our learning!

In numeracy we have been working on division. At this stage we link this to sharing fairly. The children loved feeding their peg ducklings by sharing out the food! We are still working on this and will revisit this concept many times during p2/3.

Our Big Writing this week involved us in writing a factual passage to display beside our tipi press prints. These look awesome and the children are really proud of their work.

This week we have a few new shape games in our class. We have been using 2d shapes to make pictures and patterns. The Plains Indians decorated their belongings with beautiful patterns and pictures which told us about their family and their way of life.
